MANILA, Philippines - Dominant in all departments, the University of the East Warriors mocked the odds to forge a winner-take-all UAAP championship showdown.
The Warriors reduced Ateneo into a fumbling bunch and roared to a surprising 88-68 blowout victory, spoiling the Blue Eagles’ bid to sweep the title series in Game 2 of the men’s basketball Finals at the jampacked Araneta Coliseum.
Elmer Espiritu highlighted the rout with a spectacular alley-oop dunk off a Paul Lee assist that silenced the predominantly Ateneo crowd and gave the Warriors a 19-point advantage, 79-66, with four minutes left.
